A perk about being a full-service marketing and media communications agency in downtown Washington D.C. is that our video production crew gets the opportunity to cover many different politicians and political events.
The 2016 United States caucuses and primaries have been entertaining, to say the least. History was made in June 2016, when Secretary Hillary Clinton became the first woman to be a major party’s nominee, clinching the 2,383 delegates needed to become the presumptive Democratic nominee for the office of the President of the United States.
Upon hearing this news, our team at TriVision Studios was reminded of the time we filmed the interview between the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Ahmad Ghanim of Masrawy.com, Egypt’s first and largest news portal which has followers all over North Africa and the Middle East.
The interview occurred on February 23, 2011 when TriVision’s video production crew traveled to the United States Department of State to film Clinton and Ghanim discussing the huge role social media played during the uprising of Egypt at the time. The interview was broadcast in Egypt, as well as on NBC News and other media outlets.
In the dialogue, Clinton answered questions coming directly from Egyptian youth living in the United States and Egypt. The questions which were gathered from social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, included topics ranging from the United States’ relationship with Egypt for over the previous 30 years, as well as its involvement in the revolution. In the interview, Secretary Clinton stressed how proud she was of the Egyptian youth for what they have done and applauded the people of Egypt for their courageous and nonviolent, peaceful protests.
Aside from Hillary, we have also covered events for former President Bill Clinton, as well as went to the Oval Office when former President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai visited President George W. Bush in 2001. And there was that time we built the media studio for Vice President Al Gore in Nashville, Tennessee!
We are excited to see who will win the general election in November. Whether it will be our first woman President, or an outsider like Donald Trump, we have a feeling at one point we might get to meet one (or both) of them!
